Westminster Abbey and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Abbey remains open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily Eucharist service if you are able to travel here safely within current government guidelines.

However, for the time being we are unable to open the Abbey and St Margaret’s Church for general visiting.

John Latsis

John Latsis, Greek businessman, shipping and oil magnate and banker, was a generous donor to the Westminster Abbey Restoration Appeal. A small stained glass window, designed by Alfred Fisher, can be seen in the Lady Chapel. This includes his name "CAPTAIN JOHN LATSIS" with images of an anchor, waves, a pennant with his initials and a tanker. He was born in 1910 and became one of the richest men in the world and died in 2003.
